Since his victory over the DuPont Company in 1996 before the entire U.S. Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, Thomas S. Neuberger has been recognized as one of the premier private and public sector employment law attorneys in Delaware. See Sheridan v. E.I. DuPont de Nemours and Co., 100 F.3d 1061 (3d Cir. 1996) (en banc) (reinstating the jury verdict of a longtime DuPont employee who was illegally fired and establishing the “pretext only” paradigm for proof of intentional discrimination).
The Neuberger Firm, P.A. also prides itself on fighting for the little guy, and helping the weak and helpless who were victims of childhood sexual abuse stand up to their abusers and the institutions who enabled them.
Law partners and father/son duo Thomas S. Neuberger and Stephen J. Neuberger have dedicated their professional lives to living the words of the Old Testament prophet Isaiah, “seek justice, correct oppression.”
In the words of The Wilmington News Journal’s Editorial Board, “Mr. Neuberger never gave up his fight to receive justice for his abused clients” in the Diocese of Wilmington bankruptcy case. The Firm successfully represented 99 of 146 childhood sexual abuse survivors in the recovery of over $108,000,000 and numerous non-monetary terms against the Church and later the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales and others. It also fought for nearly four years to defend and uphold the constitutionality of the landmark Delaware Child Victim’s Act of 2007, 10 Del.C. § 8145, which allowed childhood sexual abuse survivors to hold accountable those who abused them and their enablers.
Tom also is the author of the book, “When Priests Become Predators: Profiles of Childhood Sexual Abuse Survivors“, which uses sworn testimony given in jury trials and documents taken from the public court docket to tell the stories of a number of brave abuse survivors in Delaware who for many years battled the Diocese of Wilmington, the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales and the Norbertines in an attempt to protect children today by exposing the institutional cover ups of the past and present. The book is available from the Ninth Street Book Shop in Wilmington.
The Firm represents employees in Delaware and abuse survivors in Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and throughout the country.
